Our Team - Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy means helping people take part in the everyday activities of taking care of themselves, the work they do, and the activities they choose to do for fun. These basic activities of daily life can become difficult after an injury, disability, or illness, and occupational therapy professionals help you develop the skills to participate in these activities again.
Our Occupational Therapist might see people with mental health challenges and help them with:
- setting goals
- managing their time
- organizational skills
- developing routines
- maintaining schedules;
or help people with physical health challenges by:
- providing education about ongoing diseases like COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
- some activities to make it easier for them to do what they want to do
- breaking down tasks into smaller pieces to help people pace themselves when doing certain activities.
